Lutheran Social Services Of The South Named Winner Of $100,000 Humana Communities Benefit Grant In Austin

Stocks in this article: HUM

Lutheran Social Services of the South is the recipient of this year’s $100,000 Humana Communities Benefit grant in Austin, which is funded by the Humana Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM).

As the largest provider of children’s residential services in Texas, Lutheran Social Services of the South provides daily care for those who are unable to live at home due to abuse, neglect or family disruption, serving approximately 26,000 people each year.

With many families traveling far distances, they currently cannot extend visits due to accommodation expenses. The Humana Communities Benefit grant will help Lutheran Social Services of the South create Humana House, home-like apartments for families of girls in residential treatment to stay, regardless of their income levels. The new facility will allow families to lengthen their visit and participate in their child’s treatment, which will improve the girls’ chances of success, both during treatment and for future reunification.

“This substantial grant from the Humana Foundation will have such a positive impact on the people we serve, from the children who stay with us to their birth and foster parents,” said Kurt Senske, J.D., Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of Lutheran Social Services of the South. “We are so appreciative of Humana’s generosity, which will help us in our mission to provide help, hope and healing to people throughout Texas.”

Marking the third year in the Austin area, the Humana Communities Benefit program gives 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations in Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Travis and Williamson counties the opportunity to receive a one-time $100,000 grant to create new programs or enhance ongoing activities that have a positive transformational impact on the organization and the community. Proposals align with the Humana Foundation’s funding priorities of childhood health, intergenerational health and active lifestyles. The funding enables the nonprofit to achieve new milestones in its effort to improve health experiences or build healthy communities.
